All of us really enjoyed this journey. Our guide knowledge on the Moroccan & Berber history is astounding. He took us to places where common tourists don’t go. He invites us to his beautiful authentic Berber home with a nice terrace with a breathtaking view of the atlas mountains. The meal was perfect and a true experience. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.
